5 Top Creative Christmas Ads
This classic Christmas ad is still going strong 20 years after first airing! It’s the simplicity of this ad that seems to be what makes it work with the Christmas colours tying in perfectly with the Hershey’s brand.
2. Coca Cola
Santa’s red and white colour choice fits in perfectly with the Coca Cola branding so the company cleverly created its Holidays are Coming campaign centred around trucks delivering coke to the masses accompanied by a catchy jingle that will get stuck in your head all day.
Adidas presents The Cautionary Tale of Ebenezer Snoop putting a new spin on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol with Snoop Dog taking on the role of Ebenezer and the added bonus of it being illustrated by Beavis and Butthead artist JJ Sedelmaier.
4. Harvey Nichols
This creative Christmas ad from retail giants Harvey Nichols effectively promotes their store to help you avoid a same dress disaster. Check out the same-dress women in combat complete with eye lasers and some serious sci-fi inspired battle moves!
Last but by no means least, this ad from UNICEF highlights the fact that many people receive gifts that are of no use. They are targeting a new audience to invest in vaccines, medicine and nutrition for those in need. It’s a clever spin on the 3 Wise Men story and gets to the very core of the Christmas spirit!
